Description
In this study, an evaluation of English as a second language (ESL) textbooks was conducted. Thirty textbooks used in several Edmonton programs intended for students at the intermediate ESL proficiency level were examined to determine their pragmatic content. Findings suggest that ESL instructors cannot rely on textbooks to provide adequate pragmatic content. If ESL teachers want to facilitate the pragmatic competence of their students, they need to develop and/or find supplementary materials. An annotated bibliography and a reference list of resources were created to assist ESL instructors in accessing additional resources for each identified pragmatic knowledge content category.
